    Bouncing Up

    nice bump today, but you don't want this stopping at 4.68 that would be bad.

    • Is this another prediction that is not a prediction....unless it somehow comes to which case it IS a prediction and always was a prediction?
      (Kinda like NOK? Kinda like "look out below?")

      Of what? Or not of what, as the case may be.?

      You still haven't answered my query about the meaning of your knock knock joke, and, if I say so myself, I was very complimentary about the general structure of it.

      To paraphrase the learned whomever (will we ever forget ol' what's-his-name?), is there a point to be made lurking in the underbrush of your prose?

      A long time ago, I read something about how to be a stock guru. (Not so coincidentally, it was also about how to be a stock bucket shop.)

      Boiling it down to essentials, one makes a large number of prognostications for events in a somewhat removed timeframe (6 months, maybe more). One makes both bullish and bearish calls about the same stock, index, market, whatever. One counts on the short attention span of the readers, and one reminds them of ONLY the "right" calls.

      Instant acclaim; instant Guru status.

      Until somebody calls one on the wrong calls.

      But, there is the famous (if inappropriately attributed) P.T. Barnum quote. Well, you know what it is.

        When I make a wrong call I'm sure you'll be one of the first to let me know. Meanwhile the reality of my statement about OPKO hitting $4.25 before it hit 8/15 or any other "pumper" estimate came true - even if it was more sudden than it should have been. It was a simple thesis that offered a contrary opinion in reaction to other crap that was posted here.
        I tend to make statements based on some type of valid assumptions, they may be debatable and contestable, but I try to stay out of fantasy land.
        Does that make me a guru? Ha. - maybe guru for a day.

        I'll try and get back to you in the other threads to respond to the rest.
        p.s. NOK wasn't a prediction. That is just were I put my OPK money into - a questionable gamble in itself. Time will tell on that one.
